NFL Draft Props
The NFL Draft can be a very profitable betting opportunity and we have two props that we really like.
Under 5.5 -105
What Kayvon Thibodeaux provides as a pass rusher in this league is rare and extremely coveted. Thibodeaux will immediately improve any team that is picking in the top 5. Perhaps the best part about him is that his physical tools will make him a Day 1 impact player, and he has a lot of room to improve his technique, meaning his ceiling could even be higher than his college level of production.
Lions general manager Brad Holmes recently said that with the No. 2 overall pick, you need to get a game-changer with such high draft capital. Ask anyone that followed Oregon football for the past three years and they’ll all tell you Thibodeaux changed the game.
The Lions are a real possibility as a landing spot for Thibodeaux and that would obviously cash our under 5.5. But the Texans, Jets, and Giants are also very real options who may not be able to pass up on a top end edge rusher who is possibly the most NFL ready defensive player in this draft. He has an extremely quick first step that will no doubt make NFL teams anxious not to pass him up. He has been compared to the likes of Khalil Mack and Von Miller which is high praise and potentially could transform a defensive unit.
Top 32 -125
When looking at various projections Dotson is either a late-first-round or early-second-round pick. Analysts love his sticky hands, his ability to snatch any pass out of the air is elite, and there aren’t many that can catch as well as Dotson. He might not have the frame of other first-round prospects, which is why he’s projected later on Day 1 but with the Adams trade Green Bay is a definite possibility. He is a really promising prospect who will be able to contribute from day one and he has been touted as a very hard worker.
He is a little undersized but he has phenomenal hands and natural body control with a huge catch radius. Mel Kiper believes that Dotson could be one of the biggest steals in the second half of the first round. McShay agrees, sending Dotson to the Green Bay Packers with the 28th overall pick. That was before the Adams trade, so the pick seems even more likely now.
